    Just wonder what other people have done to replace the dust seal where the spindle come through the brake backing plate. With out buying the hole thing new. Mine are not bent or messed up. Thought of putting and O ring in their. Or something like that. If you guy's have done this would love to here about it. Russ.

    Thanks 69hemibeep. Yep that is what I found behind the first one. Too bad they don't sell some kind of seal for them. Thought of putting an O ring in side the gap of the old one. Thanks again. Russ.

    I hope so. This is a bigger project than it seemed. LOL. Nothing is simple on these old car's. Even with experience it is getting old that messes us up I think.

    OER maybe. Mopart's. Then the old fail safe would be classic.
